ICTM is hosting a webinar with Graham Fletcher on Mathematical Modeling in the Elementary Classroom!
Their description of the webinar and a registration link follows below:
The term “model” is frequently misinterpreted as simply the use of manipulatives in math. This alone doesn’t satisfy the expectation of Standard for Mathematical Practice #4: Model with Mathematics. Through the use of 3-act task, we’ll briefly discuss what mathematical modeling is and how to make sure it’s happening in our classrooms.
The webinar will be Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 3:30 PM CST. Space is limited, but please feel free to spread the word to friends and colleagues. You can register here. Once you register, you’ll get a confirmation email with more directions on how to join.
